Annabel Karmel’s Sushi Sandwich Rolls

A recipe from my colleague Annabel Karmel. It’s time to liven up lunchtime with my sushi-style wraps. These are an ingenious way to get kids to try new ingredients. Serve with kid’s chopsticks for added appeal!

Fussy eating can set in anytime from 10 months onwards and it’s a completely normal part of child development. The key is understanding your child’s developmental stage and making foods fun is one way to appeal to how they see the world.
